2017-06-29_0001.jpgWandering into the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center is stepping into the modern day ruins of old Texas: all sandy stone and climbing ivy and agave plants, a place to return to again and again as you find new paths and new plants defying the odds; growing sturdily in the Texas heat.

New paths every time you show up. Kind of like… being married.

Elisha wanted to look like a Spanish queen as she married her long time love Dane, and she wanted it to be in a place that they could return to for the rest of their lives. These sweethearts have been together for so long that a wedding almost feels like an unnecessary formality; they’re so committed and in sync and loving and dog-parenting (hi Oscar!) as it was. But as Dane said his vows with a quivery voice and firm conviction, I was reminded that a wedding, once you decide to do it, is never an unnecessary formality. It’s a fresh start to an established promise and damn it’s beautiful, when you do it thoughtfully.

We felt like we wandered into a dream as soon as we set foot on this sprawling Austin property, and every dinner party that isn’t under twinkling lights and the broad Texas sky will now feel like it’s just missing something. Elisha and Dane, thank you for letting us be a part of your fiesta— to many happy years of wandering together amidst the Wildflower Center cacti.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
